Gabriela Pinto and the UMC tennis team fell to Upper Iowa on Sunday.

The Minnesota Crookston women's tennis team fell 7-0 to Winona State and Upper Iowa this weekend at the Winona Tennis Center in Winona.

In Saturday's match against the host Warriors, the Golden Eagles (0-7) fell 6-0 at all three doubles spots. Tasha Achermann (Fr.) took two games at No. 1 singles in a 6-2, 6-0 loss, but UMC was swept at every other position.

The Golden Eagles had slightly more success Sunday against the Peacocks. Michelle Swyter (Jr.) fell 6-4, 6-2 at No. 2 singles, Ashley Chomyn (Sr.) lost 6-1, 6-2 at No. 3 singles and Karli Renney (Sr.) dropped her match 6-0, 6-2 at No. 4.
